Although we are skipping many, many unblogged wonderful experiences not limited to our first granddaughter Fia Olive, wonderful cruising in Florida for for 2021 and a great winter in Bahamas for 2022, many visitors, many great sails…..

We wanted to post an update on what’s up right now.

When we ordered and built Echo our plan was to be cruising in Europe. Like so many dashed plans, this one was interrupted by COVID. Since we could not travel to U.K. to pick her up, we had her shipped to Baltimore.

We now have an opportunity to restart our European plans and to expedite we have decided to ship Echo back on a freighter. She loaded yesterday in Ft Lauderdale.

We will meet her in Southampton England June 14!
